Forum: GratefulDead Subject: 7/1/73 AUD

I recently 'rediscovered' 7/1/73 and have listened to it numerous times in the past few weeks.

Does this ever get old?

one of my favorite AUD's. Proof a great quality audience is better than a SBD, that is when the AUD is as good as this ( examples 9-28-75, 7-27-73,6-22-73 ). And the Other One gets pretty nice and weird too

"Proof a great quality audience is better than a SBD"

I dunno JOTS. It's one of my favorite audience recordings as well. But since the second set does not seem to be available as a soundboard, I dont know how you can say that. I i'm not sure you will still believe that after hearing the second set jam off the vault reels...

It kind of pisses me off that they have so much of this music in the vault that we don't have access to. I wish they would release this all this stuff!

Hey Cliff, I never actually checked but kind of assumed it wasn't available in SBD due to the fact that I have seen you say good things numerous times about this AUD ( given your often voiced anti AUD stance ).

Don't get me wrong I prefer the SBD 9 times out of 10. It's just sometimes a great AUD really captures what it's all about. For instance the crispness of Billy's cymbals on some 73 AUD's. I can think of quite a few aud recordings ( usually FOB or even right on stage even better ) that capture the spacial relation of the sound better than a sbd. That's the thing about the band that doesn't always come through on recordings I think - the way they manipulated and played with the tones and sound and bounced it around, sometimes that was just as much a part of the magic and brilliance as the notes themselves. In the case of 6-22-73, the soundboard sounds just fine until you compare it to the aud ( imo ), the sbd for one seems to have lower levels and the audience captures more of the high end. 10-9-82 ( which I know isn't you bag ) is another example of an almost perfect sounding mix imo. And I know we disagree on 9-28-75 but I'll take the AUD any day over the SBD.

One thing I know we agree on is this is a great Other One

It never gets old. I'm getting old. I went to these three shows at the Universal Amphitheater. What I remember most was how much fun it was to do mescaline outdoors, how small the place was, and how much it hurt my brain to have to walk through Universal Studios to get to the show.

Sounds like fun - I was 10 while you were grooving to the GD at Universal.

The only advantage of getting old, trust me. I can look a youngster in the eye and say, heh heh heh, I saw Jimi Hendrix way back when.

"Does this ever get old?"

No, it never does.

I've sung the praises of this one many times. This is without a doubt one of the very best '72-'74 era audience recordings. Garcia is remarkably prominent. The bottom end isn't very distinct- a little tweaking of your knobs may be required to "feel" Lesh somewhat - and the vocals are a little low, but considering the era it was made that's quibbling. I find this is one of those "you are there" audience recordings that's best experienced on headphones. For Heads my age who weren't old enough to start seeing the Dead until the early 80s and missed their late 60s-mid 70s heyday, it's the closest thing we'll ever get to experiencing the band live during this period.

I love Wall of Sound AUD's that don't have the audience drowning out the band!

Just found this one last night: http://www.archive.org/details/gd1974-06-08.fob.sonyECM250.falanga.motb-0080.94594.flac16

Scarlet, Greatest Story, CC>IKYR, Eyes are what I checked out and they were all excellent. Never heard the ending Eyes jam done so loosely but they pull it off with swagger.

It's funny, I've been discovering this myself recently, for the first time. The AUD is so good it sounds like a soundboard in places.

This, I think, was the first playing in the band to be this long and out-there... the amount of different ideas is incredible here, and the energy is infectious.

You sure about that?

8/27 has a great playing, of course, and so do many others before 7/1/73. But this is the first one, I think to reach the 25 minute mark, and I think it is at least a few touches more exploratory than anything before it, certainly anything in 1972. For the record, I think there are plenty of playin's even in '72 that beat 8/27.

that was the first one that came to my head. My point was in response to you saying that was the first one that went out there and all I'm saying is that Playin turned the corner in late 71 as a jam vehicle. Certainly there's no question that 73 could very well be the bands musical peak but I had to disagree with your statement that 7-1-73 was THE first. And as for length, 21 minutes vs. 25, I'd pretty much put that in the same category lengthwise
